NVIDIA delays Shield shipping until next month after discovering mechanical issue

NVIDIA's handheld Shield gaming console delayed until next month

| Gaming News | Posted: Jun 27, 2013 12:27 am

NVIDIA has announced that they have delayed the shipping of their upcoming handheld gaming console. Project Shield was originally slated to go on sale tomorrow, but NVIDIA has decided to push that date back to sometime in July due to a mechanical issue. The issue stems from a third-party component supplier who's part isn't quite up to NVIDIA's "exacting standards."

NVIDIA doesn't have a confirmed shipping date beyond sometime in July, so we'll let you know as soon as NVIDIA releases a firm ship date. NVIDIA has also extended apologies to those who preordered Shield and those who were looking forward to buying the console. NVIDIA believes that the console will be well worth the wait.

 

It's probably better for the company to wait and perfect the device than release a product that wouldn't garner the reviews and experience that they want.
